First stop after checking in was one of Tom's favorite old haunts, Barney's Beanery for dinner and drinks with Tom's brother Michael and his girlfriend Judie.
Unfortunately, it was karaoke night, and the only respite to be found was in the bathroom where I entertained myself with some self portraits and a shot of Janis peeking out from a stall.
When karaoke became too much to bare, Michael and Judie called it a night, and Tom and I decided to move the party down the street to the Belmont for another drink, okay...two more.
All of a sudden it was after two in the morning, and we found ourselves exceptionally grateful for the late checkout we had finagled.
To be continued...
